in and see him. him is the president of the united states. he's very much a junior partner. that is the new vice presidency. and that's what's really changed. it began under mondale and was that way to our country -- well, it wasn't so useful under cheney but i think now the vice president is a junior partner. he's explained to barack obama. looking up to him as a smarter guy, perhaps a tougher guy. but certainly with great loyalty. >> ed shultz, we're leading up to the president's speech. what are your impressions there? >> he was trying really hard tonight. he was trying to get as emotionally connected to the audience as he possibly could. it wasn't his smoothest performance, but it was effective. you could tell the crowd was involved. they know this man. they know what he's about. he's a genuine guy. high on sincerity, believable. i thought it was good testimony to the president. >> chris? >> i don't think we've seen that pitch of the president so far. the idea that it's about his judgment and what's in his gut and this kind of undescribable part of his being that can make the right call

. teddy kennedy had that. clinton has that. i think that in time, the president of the united states, barack obama, is acquiring it as well. there was at the end of his speech where he began to warm, to warm to it. there was a kind of passion that built and i thought that's the direction he has to go. that will be his authenticity. >> i agree with you. there was a lot of talk of it being a workmanlike speech but it ended with a huge lift. we will talk more about the performances on display at the dnc last week on "now." james lipton gave us his assessment of governor romney's big speech at the rnc. >> i would say that he has certainly improved, without question. he was more confident. he was more assertive. he was more relaxed. and let us now ask why. he was preaching to the converted. he was, as we say, preaching to the choir. >> will any of the convention performances inform campaign dynamics and the race towards november? we will have more with james lipton, next. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. compa

, but bring those resources home and invest here in the united states and that is not a message mitt romney can deliver, so therefore what, he just kind of skirted the issue and tries to talk tough on china. >> he is quite remarkable. joy, can i ask, are the next 60 days going to be utterly frenzied as the candidates travel seeking voters where ever they can find them? >> one thing you're going to want to do in a swing state like florida, turn the channel quickly when they come on. they're really inundated people and i think the dvr is going to become the most valuable tool. they're going to inundate people with so many ads. we are really going to know how this thing is shaking out baseded on where these guys go. if you don't see mitt romney in pennsylvania, that's sending you a signal of where they think they can and cannot win. it will be interesting to see if romney goes to ohio and how much time he spends there. if you don't see him harping on those states -- i can tell you that talking to obama campaign people, they're pretty confident about the math. >> thank you so much. >>> next, le

think the public may watch with anger as the united states jeopardizes, again, our bond rating worldwide. >> there's another issue that's out there related to the election, congressman and last night john lewis made an impassioned argument against voter i.d. laws. it was emotional. i want to ask you about reality. can these laws potentially change the outcome of this upcoming election? >> absolutely. when you consider the fact that many african-americans in the south were not born in hospitals as my father and his brothers were not, and so they have no birth certificate. if they are no longer driving, then it's going to be difficult for them to show government issued i.d. if you have government issued i.d. in my home state it will cost you $21. that's a poll tax. we need to shave off a couple of percentage points like in states of ohio, virginia, florida and we lose the states. it's a very serious issue. it's a solution looking for a problem. there is no voter fraud in the united states of america. and i hope the public can come to the conclusion that all of a sudden republicans are movi

think there's a real problem with that guy being president of the united states. just in terms of the persona he presents. he's not really human. your thought? >> well, he's pulled out the reagan playbook. but it's just not working 30 years later the way it did 30 years ago. he wants to add things back in without explaining. he wants 100,000 troops without explaining what they'll do. >> reagan -- give him credit here which i often do. he understood the importance of getting the salute right. to recognize he was commander in chief and he was connecting with the people fighting. >> that's right. but the difference is romney has talking points on a briefing book, but you saw last night the president has really connected with the military people. and in talking about veterans and jobs, the work of michelle obama and jill biden, he's bridged this international and domestic divide in ways -- >> i think you're right. the idea of the first lady and dr. biden, the second lady if you will, making a point of almost like in a civil war setting. that women taking an interest in mostly guys

to disappoint and mitt romney really next to the president of the united states looks like someone with better ideas is going to fix this, then in the final weeks he could make the sale and win. >> what are those better ideas? you cannot say you have them and not present them, and i think that's what i hear from a lot of people as well who are those undecideds that i still wonder how undecided they are. nefrlgs, michael, i love you because you talk to people all day long on your radio show. what's the most common thing you hear right now, especially related to this specific jobs report after the convention? >> let me say, people seemed underwhelmed by the president's speech last night, tamron. one fellow from boston said it reminds him of the beatles. they had so many hits it reached a point where it was hard to have an extraordinary song because they already had a great catalog. by that he meant that the president has so often knocked it out of the park that the bar was very high for him, and it made it very difficult for him to have an extraordinary night last night. by all accounts it was a
